Sometimes I look at a space and think, “Ugh. That’s a decluttering project I need to do.”
When I have time to do a decluttering project.
But then, when time is short before an impending doorbell, I tackle it anyway. Even though I don’t have the time to do it right. Even when I don’t have the mental energy to decide what should stay and what should go, so I don’t get rid of anything.
And then, I’m shocked when I see that just a simple straightening was all it really needed. A tiny bit of time, zero angst, and the bookshelf looks better.
Not perfect, but better.
Oh, and I did end up purging a few no-brainers into the Donate Box that’s in the bottom corner of the Before Picture.
Turns out, I didn’t need to declutter (or even perfectly straighten) to feel significantly better about this space.
